First action packed shot of Owen Wilson, Steve Martin and Jack Black's birdwatching epic

When I heard someone was making a comedy about birdwatching, I immediately thought, "Oh nice, I haven't seen a Christopher Guest movie in quite some time."

But not so, in fact THE BIG YEAR is under the helm of DEVIL WEARS PRADA and MARLEY AND ME's David Frankel.

Above we have the trio of comedic cast members, Owen Wilson, Steve Martin and Jack Black who are all attempting to outdo each other to spot the rarest birds of the season. It's hard to imagine what sort of comedy plot unfolds around these dull circumstances, but I'm sure there's something interesting in store for the concept.

Joining these three are Rosamund Pike, Rashida Jones, Anthony Anderson, Joel McHale, and Angelica Huston, making for a rather well rounded cast. Look for more on this one down the road.

This could be interesting. With jack black we have physical comedy. Owen wilson can do adult comedy with rosamund pike as his interest. Steve Martin can do sarcasm comedy along with angelica houston. With a crew like that we will definately see some fairly decent laughs for everyone who chooses to see this movie.

I looove Steve Martin, but...

...his recent film choices have left me somewhat less-than-optimistic about this film. (Black and Wilson, as fine as they can be, are in a similar boat.) Knowing it's from the director of Marley and Me leaves me even more apprehensive, along with the fact that there has been little promotion for the film until now.

Fingers crossed that it's a surprise comedy hit, but I can very easily see it being another underwhelming comedy for all involved.

Re: tidbit -- I think anyone who saw him co-host the Oscars with Alec Baldwin two years ago would disagree. He actually looked like he's had plastic surgery of some kind -- his face looks a lot different -- but yeah, the fact that he's had gray hair for the past thirty years makes it seem like he's never getting any older.

"THOSE...AREN'T...PILLOWS!"

I'm always glad to see Rosamund Pike working.

Sooooooo damn attractive.

On a side note, this makes me feel better about finding gray hairs earlier this year...I'm 22.

Pike was just cast in the new Tom Cruise movie, in case you didn't know. I remember her big breakthrough was Die Another Day almost ten years ago, and then she kinda disappeared. Odd to see a female actress making her comeback/second big breakthrough when she's in her early 30s, but good for her.

Re: Tidbit

Seriously, the dude has looked practically the same age for over 30 years now. It's the blessing and curse of going gray earlier in life.
